Prepare filling by blending together cream cheese, sugar, lemon peel & juice until creamy. For a more lemony taste make the filling the day before and store tightly capped in refrigerator. Slice croissant in half and spread 1 to 2 Tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture into each croissant. Press the croissant gently closed.

For the batter, beat together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon peel and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Dip each croissant into batter, coating both sides. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet. Cook the croissants over moderate heat, about 2 minutes per side or until golden brown.
